    hey guys,
    i was wondering... im kinda new to the bass... at least i am to the slapping/popping aspect of it. My friend also plays the bass... but when he slapps he winds up and hits the string hard. It gets a percussion-ish sound. Ive always thought that is how u r supposed to play slap. I was wondering what exactly is goos slap/pop supposed to sound like... how does the sound differ from fingerstyle? and can anyone link me to a site or tell me exactly how to slap... a reaaaaal begeners lesson in it (pref w/ pictures) thanks
